This month at Stamp Group I taught the ladies how to do the Heated Ribbon Technique. It's so cool to watch the ribbon shrink to the design that you want just by putting the heat tool next to the ribbon. I used all products from SU, Sticky Sheet cut from the 2nd largest size circle on the Circle #2 Big Shot die. I used about a 19" piece of the Old Olive Satin Ribbon cut at 1" intervals, about 1/8" in all the way down the length of the ribbon. Take off one side of the Sticky Sheet and start pleating the ribbon all the way around until you get to the middle. Heat the ribbon up until it looks like you want it. Cut the same size circle of C/S to match the ribbon. Put that on the back side of the sticky strip after pulling off the white backing of the sticky strip. Put a pearl or something in the middle of the ribbon flower and you're done. The DSP is Beyond the Garden. The embossing folder is Flower Garden. The flowers were colored with Pastels. Everything was sponged with Early Espresso Ink.

This next card was CASE'D from My Creative Corner. I made a few small changes to it to make it mine. The flower was embossed with Winter White embossing powder on Pretty in Pink c/s & Certainly Celery for the leaves. The flower was popped up with Dimensionals. The color didn't come out very well. The DSP was Pink Pirouette polka Dots & the background white mat was ran thorough the Dotted Swiss Embossing Folder.
